Description: Ardiyanti takes on Johnny Cage LIVE! in the Noh Theater!

Ah, the Noh Theater. Known for putting on such grandiose productions as Madea Kicked My Ass and Madea Kicked My Ass Again! and a whole number of other performances. However, this time, the stage has been procured by SNF to host a performance art piece... for the kids! The presence of one old martial arts lady has been requested to allow the children to see a true artiste in action!

Perhaps that's why there were a multitude of school buses parked outside. For some of these brats, this is a field trip of learning.

While whatever's happening inside happens, the wheels of a Ferrari roll to a stop and out steps the forever stylish and all ego: Johnny Cage. A grin crosses his features as he glances up at the theater's building and flicks a piece of random dirt off his shoulder before heading for the entrance.

Ardiyanti is already inside the theater, seated on the wooden floorboards in front of the fancy samurai armor prominently displayed. The old woman is seated cross legged with her hands on her knees, a smile on her face and her eyes closed as she seems to just meditate, the wind blowing her long braided hair. She hears the arrival of the fancy car and waits until the actor is within the building before speaking.

"Ohhhhh, well, it's not every day I get to fight a movie star, hohohoho!" She stands, dusting off her martial arts uniform. Her eyes remain squinted but not quite shut, to fit the smile on her well worn features. "...and a strapping one too. Oh, I bet ALL the ladies throw themselves at you."

"No wager needed. Everybody wants a piece of Johnny Cage."

Johnny cracks a big smile as he shrugs into his jacket a bit more and makes his way towards the area in which they shall be allowing themselves to beat each other up for the good of the crowd! Also, for the fun of it because why the hell not.

"if you're lucky, you might even get an autograph when this is all over. I'll leave it nearby so you can see it when you wake up." Oh the cocky banter on this one. It makes him immediately sliding into his fighting stance all the more fitting. He's here to put on a show, as always, so the quips are being tossed around early.

Ardiyanti gets into her stance, her left leg extending out and held straight while she bends her right knee and leans back slightly. Her right hand comes up to about neck level, open palm, while the other hand is held parallel to the floor at waist level. "Mmmm...I haven't fought anyone brimming with confidence in a long time...go easy on a poor, brittle old woman, won't you, stud?" she says in a teasing manner.

Her eyes open slightly, however, to stare at Johnny. Suddenly she is moving, and moves quick - in fact, it almost seems like she is running on all fours, but she is merely keeping a stance so low that it just appears this way. She lunges for Johnny, aiming an elbow right for his stomach!

Ardiyanti        0/-------/=======|=------\-------\0      Johnny Cage

Rocking his shades in full display of everything, Johnny Cage just keeps his smirk up the whole time he listens to the old lady's words. "Ain't nothin' 'bout Johnny Cage easy, lady." He even takes the time to pull down his shades a bit so that he can wink in her direction.

Which gives her the opening to dash in his direction. There's barely enough time for him shove his glasses back on his face, plant his back leg and extend his hands to brace for impact. That elbow smacks right into his palms, his feet skid back a half-step and Johnny tilts his head with impressed amusement. "Were you always this fast? I bet your prom night was a ball."

Johnny immediately reaches for his pocket and comes out with his camera. In one smooth motion he brings it up to snap a quick photo of his opponent, making sure that bright flash is aimed right for her old eyes. "Smile!"

"I can still dance like these young folk. Or do you all just 'grind' nowadays?" Ardiyanti chuckles. Despite the casual conversation mid battle, and her ever present smile, she is studying Johnny closely. When he brings up the camera she instantly moves, grabbing his arm and yanking it before he can click the shutter button. A swift knee plunges directly into his gut, followed by a punch led by the knuckles of her index and middle finger directly into his throat. Breathing might be a tad painful after that one.

Just as quickly she disengages and resumes her stance.

Cage's Camera smashes against the floor as Johnny gets his body rocked like nobody's show business. So much so that he's stumbling backwards to try and get himself some room to breathe. Not to mention trying to actually breathe. The most distressing part of this whole ordeal is that he can't even answer her fight-convo question. So he just kind of holds up one finger and points to his throat. Y'know, so she doesn't feel like he's ignoring her banter.

Johnny Cage is always one to follow Fight Manners.

From there, Johnny spins right into an extended leg and slides across the floor, after trails following closely behind as he leads the way with his patented Shadow Kick! Cage is bringing out the showstopping moves early with this one!

Ardiyanti        1/--=====/=======|=====--\-------\0      Johnny Cage

The silat master is surprised by Johnny's sudden speed, barely dodging the attack as he slides past her - his foot grazes her side and it smarts considerably. She marvels at how much damage that might have done if it hit full on. She twirls and resumes her stance, still smiling pleasantly. "So, the chi you use isn't just for show, is it? Now things are getting interesting, young man."

She moves again, and this time something happens. Ardiyanti seems to suddenly blitz Johnny again faster than one can blink, floating across the wooden floorboards; but then she seems to re-appear behind this illusion, grabbing Johnny and tossing him over her shoulder to slam him right into the ground hard enough to make the building shake.

Ardiyanti        1/-======/=======|=------\-------\0      Johnny Cage

Johnny is still trying to cough his voice back into existence and while he does manage to find it again, there's a bit more rasp to it. Which may only add to his sexiness. At least, that's how Johnny hears it. "I've said it before and I'll say it again. I /AM/ the special effects."

Cage coughs again, watching as Ardiyanti comes blitzing in his direction. It is only his sunglasses that save him, giving him just a moment to realize that someone is also behind him. A moment almost too late as he can feel the old lady's hand on him. He shoves out of that grasp, spinning himself down towards the floorboards with an extended leg to sweep the old lady off her feet and roll away to put a little space between her and him!

The old lady goes down, and goes down hard. Johnny's sweep slams into her legs and sends her spinning in the air until she lands on her back with a bounce. She grunts after a moment of lying there, rolling and springing back to her feet. She winces as the pain in her leg and back still burn hot. "So if you win, I get an autograph...but if I win, perhaps you can get me a spot as an extra in your next film? Oh, I always wanted to be in pictures, even as a child!"

Deciding Johnny is a suitable opponent, she opts to turn up the heat a little. Her foot lashes out to stomp on Johnny's expensive sneakers, getting in close and unleashing a volley of rapid punches to his chest and face. After this her leg snaps up for a double kick, one to the chest and the other to the side of the head, then uses that same leg to hook around Johnny's neck and pull him to the ground, grabbing an arm to yank the joint in painful fashion.

Johnny stands up now, cocky smirk on his face and trying to see if he can't stop raspy voicing. It may just continue to last for a bit longer. "Oh ho. We're making a full on wager now?" This makes Johnny smile even more. "Oh, you are /so/ on." That's right. He actually digs the fact that there's more stakes being built onto the top of this whole fight right here.

Johnny Cage always does better when something's on the line.

"As a child?" Johnny begins his banter as he slides his foot from underneath the stomp attempt from Ardiyanti. As those volley of punches come rapidly in his direction, Johnny dips and weaves around them, almost like he's traveling in Bullet Time. As her leg comes up, Johnny bends backwards, letting it pass over him and drops to the ground to roll away from the hooking attempt of her same violent leg.

Popping back up to his feet, Johnny spins back towards her with an extended back of his fist headed towards her face. "They /had/ movies back then?"

Ardiyanti twists her upper half slightly, Johnny's back punch whizzing past her by inches. She responds by attempting to slam her fist into his exposed side right under the armpit with potentially enough force to knock him back. "Oh yes, they sometimes had cartoons that played before them, you know," she answers dryly.

"Cartoons? Really?"

For once, Johnny actually sounds like he's learning something. Granted, he may have known this already and it could've been the beginning of a set up for another one of his snide remarks but the exposed side is such a fitting target that the strong fist from Ardiyanti sends him sailing backwards. His body gets some air before he collides into the floorboards, hard. Some of them crack beneath the weight of Johnny Cage's arrival and he skids to a stop. Definitely not of his own volition though.

Pain is in his face as he attempts to get back into a steady enough stance. "Okay. That one hurt." Cage is just stating more than whining as he reaches up to pull his shades off his face and gives them a quick hurl towards Ardiyanti. While those sunglasses sail through the air, he reaches beneath his jacket and flicks out another pair of identical shades to slide them onto his face.

Ardi attempts to slap the glasses away, but in doing so they promptly explode, flinging her away and skidding on her back across the floor, now with some scorch marks to show for it. She gasps, surprised by Johnny's trick items coming into play. "I am thankful for this fight, young Mr. Cage. It has been a long time since I got to stretch these old bones...I hope you don't pass out on me TOO quickly, now."

She races for Johnny again, this time with a keen eye for his next move. She lunges, aiming to grab his head with both of her legs mid-jump, then violently pull him to the ground head-first with said legs.

"Don't worry about me! I can go all night!"

Johnny almost immediately regrets those words as he spots the older woman headed in his direction. He shifts into his classic Mime Time stance and starts trapping himself in an invisible box... as if that were going to provide some defense. Instead, those legs shatter the box that's not there, cause Cage's face to go into complete shock and he gets yanked right up into the air and smashed down into the ground with such vicious brutality. Cage's body slumps. But at least he's still breathing.

Ardiyanti chuckles at Johnny's quip even as she's smashing his face into the floor. Now she stands over him, hands behind her back as she lies there. "Ah, if only I had the stamina! Unfortunately for you, I like to turn in early." She raises her foot and brings it down in a quick axe kick with her heel before he can get off the ground.

Johnny's on the ground for longer than he realizes. Long enough for another quip to be sent in his direction. Johnny can muster up juuuuuust enough energy to bring his hands up and make an X in front of his face to take the brunt of that axe kick. It still stings though.

"Let me tuck you in, then."

Johnny rolls away and back up to his feet, his fists suddenly shimmering with twin pairs of golden brass knuckles. Both fists of his reading 'CAGE' in jeweled square shapes for optimum damage dealing. He knocks his fists together and bum rushes Ardiyanti to lay into her face with a series of brutal punches to the face.
It doesn't look like he's going to stop until she she says the magic word, either.

Ardiyanti        1/--=====/=======|=======\====---\1      Johnny Cage

Ardiyanti merely chuckles again when she sees Johnny pull out the brass knuckles. "Ooh, what are you going to do with THOSE?" she asks innocently. She doesn't even move, letting the actor come to her first. Then her eyes suddenly open wide, giving a brief glimpse of her predatory gaze as they seem to shine with expectancy. Yes, she certainly wants him to come to her. As he throws his first punch, she is already gliding past him like a ghost and ending up at his back. She delivers a swift kick to the back of his knee to force him down, then drives her elbow in the back of his neck. She ends this by shoving him forward so face can meet the floor.

"... nothing. ow."

That is the response from Johnny Cage as he reacts after the collective combo of viciousness that happens upon himself. The way this old lady moves is enough to have his eyebrows raised before the onslaught of violence ends up with him smashing his face into the floor.

With her assistance, of course.

It is at that moment, the moment when his face collides with the wood and his sunglasses shatter that he starts to see the darkness develop.

As his body slumps the rest of the way to the floor to help prove that he's out of this fight, there's only enough energy left for him to do one... final... action.

The autograph floats into Ardiyanti's grip, who stares at it ponderously for a moment before smiling again. "Mm, looks like it's you taking an early nap, Mr. Cage...thank you for the fun time. I expect to hear from your agent very soon, I think!" Laughing, the old woman walks her way out of the theater.
